Morning Meanderings… A MUCH Anticipated Read


 Good Morning!!!  😛

Do book lovers influence your reading?  They sure can for me!  A good enthusiastic talk about a book and really – I start to crave it.  If it can make someone else excited…. I want the experience.  Here is an example:

I am in New York last month having dinner with a lovely group of bloggers.  Suddenly someone mentions a book I have never heard of before.  Night Circus. 

 “It’s about a circus that only appears at night”

“It is going to be awesome – very YA – this will be a hit!”

“It is said to be the next Harry Potter!”

Whoa.  Stop the presses.

I want this book.

The Book Expo is out of the ones they handed out.  I come home and I email the publishing company of my interest explaining my conversation at BEA… and then I wait.

Packages come… not it.  not it.  Not it.

And then…

it arrives.

All beautifully packaged in Circus striped paper and a lovely red ribbon addressed to me. 


I do not want to open it.

Too pretty.  😛

Night Circus!

So I finally feel like I am over a blogging funk.  Yesterday I wrote 5 reviews.  It felt awesome.  For the last week and a half when I went to write a review I suddenly was exhausted just thinking of adding the pictures, the synopsis, my thoughts, linking to Amazon, Good Reads, my Reading Map….. GAH.  I usually closed the laptop and went to bed instead of writing anything.

BUT – yesterday for the first time since before my bike accident I came home… did a couple minor housecleaning things… and CHILLED.  Yup.  Sat in the recliner with a cup of chicken soup and a bottle of water and I wrote the afternoon away.  I even prepped all my posts for my current reads and listens.

Today I hope to write the two interviews I have ready to go, and hopefully just read this evening.  Ahhhhhh….. just read.  I like the sound of that.  😀

  1. Love the beautiful packaging! The cover of the book is stunning! My book club in reading this in a few month and I am looking forward to it!

  2. Wow, the packaging is so nice! I’d leave it wrapped up until you really HAVE to see what’s inside. Glad you’re feeling more in the blogging mood now!

  3. You’re certainly looking better; glad you’re feeling better too. It’s so much fun to get your hands on a book you’re so looking forward to. Happy reading.

  4. Very pretty looking book and packaging.

    You are looking much better than you did last week.

    Speedy recovery for that wrist, except for when the housework needs seeing to 🙂


  5. I too have heard several people raving about this one. I keep going to the mailbox with anticipation, hoping that I am lucky enough to receive a copy. Nothing so far, but I’ll keep looking!

    Glad to hear that you are feeling better.

  6. When I first saw this book, I thought it probably wasn’t for me. I have seen some reviews for it though that have been fantastic! On the wish list it goes! I am like you..I don’t know if I could open a book that was wrapped up so pretty!

    You look so much better and it looks like you are healing nicely. Summer in a cast is not fun though! I hope you continue to feel better!

    1. Kathy up until today i had three finers free of the cast that i could use… however today i was placed in a new cast and my fingers are entirely covered….. going forward looks to be slow going.

  7. So glad that you’re out of your funk and it looks like you’re healing nicely! I agree, that packaging is almost too pretty to open! Hope you enjoy and that the anticipation was worth it!

    1. Heidi the cast i had on through this morning left my foingers hanging out so i have been typing away… now they put me in a new one and my fingers are covered….. right hand only is slowing me down….

  8. That book just started showing up all over the blogosphere, I look forward to some reviews. Great packaging, hope you enjoy it.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
